Forum: movies Subject: Re: Why no new films for a week?

First, be thankful this is here.

I LOVE this place. When I saw films going away during school in the 70s for film loops and video machines I knew the old film libraries were going to be gems waiting out somewhere that the Public wasn't aware of and only a few who knew about school film catalogs and TV film catalogs WERE going to be aware of and I wanted to do EXACTLY this, collect the old film libraries. And watch them.

What I have found is that this occasional "downtime" on new features being posted usually means that IA is in another section filling that out. That's only reasonable. There is more than just features in the whole of filmdom.

Having said that... IA et al, once upon a time there were a few shorts that featured cats, birds, doggies, and other critters in the starring roles. One I recall in particular featured an evil conniving crow that sets fire to the mock hotel where all the canaries are hanging out. Anyway it's quite an animal show as all the animals act personified and do like humans do and the storytelling narrative is good as well. Any chance we might see one or two of those?
